Israel/Palestine: Gaza Disengagement

In her attempt to revisit the issue of house demolitions, to speak again with the thousands of Palestinian who lost their homes in Rafah all in the name of security for the settlers, Lila of A Mother from Gaza Blog discovers that Abo Holi (Israeli checkpoint inside Gaza) is closed, and reports that a day earlier, Gaza settlers continued to disrupt Palestinian life as they attacked villagers near Kfar Darom and burned down their storage sheds, as she says.

On the other hand, Kabbalah for Women says on Gaza Disengagement that everyone in the center is very moved and sad about the current state of affairs but inside they're happy it's happening to someone else and not them.
